Teaching can be one of the most rewarding professions, but it can also bring a surprising amount of stress. This weekend intensive is designed to help K-12 teachers foster resilience in the face of this stress, increasing mindful awareness, presence, compassion, reflection, and inspiration – all inner resources that are needed to help students flourish socially, emotionally, and academically. For teachers, these resources can provide the inner strength to be powerfully present and emotionally responsive. As a result, teachers become effective leaders, and influential models of healthy social and emotional behavior.

You’ll leave this intensive with your very own “mindfulness manifesto,” or specific ways – large or small – in which you’ll apply the knowledge you gained into your work in the classroom. A sampling of what will be covered:

 

Friday 10am – 4pm

What is mindfulness… and why now, more than ever?

Experiential learning/practice

The stress cycle, and its impact on your brain.

Break-Out Groups by K-6 & 7-12.

Saturday 10am – 4pm

Mindfulness and social emotional development

Some research findings – and how do we best use this practice?

Interventions that work: building resilience-coming back after adversity

Break-Out Groups by K-6 & 7-12.
